On 18 September 1929, José Régio sent a letter to Alberto Serpa expressing his desire to create a production company and start making films. He asked him to contact a friend who had a film camera. For almost ninety years, nothing more was known about the outcome: no reply from Serpa was ever found and Régio never mentioned the subject again. However, the discovery of some old reels in a collector’s hoard seems to provide the ending to the story.
